Specifications, Availability and Pricing


The all black chassis comes made mostly of SECC steel that makes up the frame and all but the top trim and front bezel. The top trim and front bezel are constructed of black ABS plastic and is shaped to give the chassis an aggressive lean forward. The front, along with the lean, has what appear to be overlapping armor plates going down the entire length with thick columns on either side and it covers the four 3.5-inch bays and the 120mm fan at the bottom. The left side has a large mesh area inserted into the panel and behind it are six fans already installed in this location. On the flip side of the case you will find room for an 80mm or 92mm fan behind the CPU socket while the rest of the panel is textured with the paint and of course black to match the rest. In the back of the chassis you will find room for the PSU, eight expansion slots, four water cooling grommets and one 120mm fan controlled with the touch panel. The last of the ten included fans can be found in the roof of the chassis and all of them are touch panel controlled.

Along with what was just covered, there is the touch panel itself and the front I/O to cover. The touch panel offers two rows of buttons that will give you options for control of the fans power, and if turned on, there is buttons for low, mid, and high speed control. The bottom row offers a mute of the audible confirmation of the touch panel's use, a panel lock, led power control and the PCs power button. In front of those eight buttons you then find the connections for the USB 3.0, USB 2.0, e-SATA, and the pair of 3.5mm audio jacks.

With the exterior well covered, let's move inside. To power the ten fans you will find a pair of controllers on duty in the 787. There is one attached to the door with a Molex and a 2-pin connection to allow for power and case control right on the inside of the left door. The other controller can be found at the base of the motherboard tray. The optical drive bays have tool-lees clips which are nice and all, but the real beauty is found in the hard drive rack, if I can call it that. You can add any combination of up to four 3.5" drives or six 2.5" drives using a dual bay rack attached to the bottom of the chassis. The other four spots are on what I will call wings for now until I can show you. These wings are really cool, and will not only make airflow better inside, but it makes swapping drives much easier as well.

If you are to go to Xclio.com and have a look at the Touch 787, there is a red icon that flashes the word "new" at you, as this chassis was just released. Shopping ends up pretty limited when I get in these sort of situations, and today is no change. As I went shopping via Google, looking up the Xclio touch 787 only leads to one hit currently. That hit would be our old friends at Newegg.com listing $159.99 as the going price to get a Touch 787 to your door. If the pricing for this super tower isn't enough to take you over the edge, maybe the $2.99 shipping is enough to put you over the edge. With what you are about to see included with the Xclio Touch 787, I feel at this point that the price is justified to say the least.
